Putting the universe in perspective
You need to take a look at this image. This puts our earth, in fact, our galaxy on a stage that makes us look absolutely tiny.

Haha, I love pictures like this. I already knew we were a small speck in the universe, but seeing pictures really makes it seem all the more convincing. Hopefully space travel advances quickly though... else the other stars will only drift farther and farther away with time.

LoL yeah the one about capturing the thousands of galaxies blew my mind, where the image we got is from 800 Million years ago. That's just unbelievable. Seriously, I can't even fathom that.

Mhm, it's hard to comprehend how unimportant and insignificant we and our daily lives really are.
